The MPire team was absolutely incredible with- they were experts at their job but also such good hearted people to deal with. Vikram and his team helped take our vision, add their own experience and ideas to it and took it to the next level. I was a stress-free bride for the 3 days of my wedding because they took care of every single detail and I had nothing to worry about. Thank you to the entire team for being so patient and amazing.

The Mpire team ensured we had the wedding the way we dreamt of. All their departments showed so much strength throughout the process. Vikram, the CEO was more like a friend than a planner to the entire family. He ensured everyones opinions were taken care. On account of Covid 19 there were so many uncertainities but he and his team delivered 200%. His connections within the industry and reputation all came to use during this difficult time. Would really like to appreciate his team, the shadows given to both Akash & me, parents were amazing. Prajakta at the hospitality desk was so helpful to all our guests we had people coming back and thanking us for the hospitality. Karishma who took care of the decor was also very responsible and delivered. I know how important weddings are and would recommend Vikram to anyone.

Our wedding in Goa was the biggest and most momentous few days of our lives so far and it went more than perfectly thanks to Vikram and his Mpire team. The planning process started 18 months earlier and throughout that time they always listened to all of our concerns and thoughts and made sure that every part of the wedding was seamless for what we wanted. From the karaoke night, to the incredible mehendi pool party, crazy sangeet, perfect pithi, both magical wedding ceremonies (Gujarati and Kerala style) and the amazing reception, we can’t think of one thing that didn’t go to plan or eventually turn out better than the initial plans. So many guests commented on how personal they felt the wedding was (which is one of the big things we wanted) and we couldn’t have done that without the whole Mpire team who encouraged us to share every idea and dream we had and then worked to make those dreams a reality. They all put in so much effort during the wedding itself, being on hand to fix any small mishap or issue, and this allowed both of to be able to enjoy every moment with our family and friends without a worry in the world. It felt like the whole thing really just couldn’t have gone any better and our friends and family keep telling us exactly that. If you want a dream wedding, pick Mpire!

This review is specifically for foreigners in need of a planner looking to have their wedding in India – if you, like us, are looking for a team that can execute to the best of their abilities, while alleviating the many stresses and burdens that come with planning a wedding in a country you are unfamiliar with, unfortunately, we cannot say Mpire is the right choice. Our wedding was not like the extravagant ones Mpire is known for – it had a relatively small guestlist of only 150 people, and a budget of 100K CAD. The Mpire team was well aware that this project would be different in terms of scale and cost, but assured us that it would be of no issue. In fact, they left us feeling very convinced that we were in the best of hands. As anyone familiar with the stress of a wedding can attest to, clear and consistent communication with your wedding planner is an absolute necessity. Often times, our messages to Mpire were ignored. For several months, we were overwhelmingly anxious about the team holding off on starting work for our wedding. We asked persistently when they would begin taking action, but were always told not to worry and that things in India are done “last minute.” Putting off all of the coordination until the very last month was exactly what we had feared – we did not want the additional stress of coordinating these details while we were taking care of other aspects (such as shopping for outfits and having work commitments) and made this very clear. Yet again, our request was ignored. As a result, we ended up working long hours each day on coordinating massive details, right up until the last week before the wedding. This left us feeling stressed as well as emotionally and physically drained - not how you want to feel leading up to your wedding. From the get-go, we made it clear to Mpire that we wanted our wedding to stay within our budget. This request was also not respected. Mpire gave us an approximate cost plan when we told them our budget, yet as time went on, each item was costing much more than budgeted for, and because these details were being worked out so last minute, we had no choice but to pay the extra money. In fact, when Mpire promised us a priest who spoke English within out budget, not only did they find someone above our budget, but this person did not speak English. When we asked for an alternative, we were told that no other priest in India could do this within our budget and that we should look for someone ourselves. This happened more than once with other vendors. At the very least, we expect our wedding planners to be responsible enough to find us vendors that stay within the budget, and meet our basic requirements. Moving on to the lack of professionalism. My husband and I often expressed our concerns with the Mpire team, and in response, rather than acknowledging the many flaws and issues we were trying to work through, we were faced with defensiveness. For this reason, my father-in-law began joining in on our calls with Mpire in an effort to keep the team accountable for their lack of delivering. In response, the team told us that they were uncomfortable with someone like him joining in on the discussions. One of the most important aspects of a destination wedding is managing the accommodations and arrivals and departures of all guests. This was one of the biggest pieces we were looking to the Mpire team to handle with care. Mpire had assigned someone with very little experience to work on the guest tracking, and this created countless problems. We had several guests complain to us about the person they were in contact with, and many had no idea what to expect when they landed. We had asked Mpire to organize transportation from the airport to the resort, but some of our guests ended up taking taxis because of the lack of clarity and coordination. As well, I spent hours creating plans for graphic designs and decoration ideas, which should not have been my job to begin with, that were not carefully looked at. One of the most important pieces of our wedding was to have a table to commemorate our loved ones who have passed away. Mpire provided us with broken, duct-taped frames and fake candles, and it was truly appalling considering the quality of work we see in Mpire’s portfolio. I had asked for pictures of what decoration pieces would be used countless times for this reason, yet never received a reply and had no idea what to expect. Another example – the graphic designs we wanted for our wedding were not only printed at the last minute, but contained errors. And just when we thought it couldn’t get worse, the blame was put on us for these errors. This is one of many examples of Mpire’s focus on blame rather than solution seeking. And finally, when Mpire asked us if they could post pictures from our wedding on their social media, we gave them a strict no. However, they went against our wishes and still decided to do so. Despite all this, we will give credit where it is due. A handful of Mpire team members left us with a very positive experience, and we are grateful to them for their service. Karishma was professional and helpful throughout, and gave us many useful ideas and suggestions. Stef and Kamlesh, who were our shadows, truly went above and beyond during the days of the wedding events to ensure my husband and I, as well as our families, had everything we needed at all times. They were attentive, patient and professional. In addition, Mpire did suggest some great vendors to us. Our graphic designer Anushka from The Art Thesaurus was able to transform each idea we had into the most beautiful creations. And finally, although there were several hiccups and details missed along the way, Mpire did manage to pull off the wedding.

Vikram and his team were extremely dedicated and involved in the wedding. We had a lot of vendors and they made sure to liaise with everyone and have each one on the same page. They handled everything flawlessly. Being a widespread wedding across different parts of Mumbai, logistics, vendor and Hotel management were key elements and they didn’t disappoint us. Infact even the baraat turned out to be one crazy affair of its own. We are very glad we took Mpire on board. Source

I contacted Mpire Events to plan out my big day & gave them an idea as to what I had in mind. Everything was to the point. Right from the Bollywood theme for sangeet, a jhoola decorated with flowers, phoolon ki holi on Haldi, the perfect aisle on Reception, the flower shower during the welcome & the minutest detail possible. A big big shout out to them!Source

I couldn't have better things to say about working with Vikram and his team. Throughout the planning process, Vikram was attentive, organized and resourceful. He was always there to attend all our calls and messages even though we lived in different time zones. Vikram helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept me and my husband on track for our big day as this was the first destination wedding in the family. Living in America and planning a wedding in Goa was hard but Vikram and his team made it look seamless. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Vikram and his team were on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner, and am so grateful that we picked Vikram to help us throughout our wedding planning. Everybody in the family and all our guests were very impressed. I would recommend Vikram and his team to absolutely anyone! Go Mpire!
